About Ninja Sex Party

Ninja Sex Party is a rock band who has been at the forefront of American musical comedy for the past decade. Originally meeting through mutual friends at The Upright Citizens Brigade school in 2009, singer Dan Avidan (a.k.a. Danny Sexbang) and theoretical physicist / piano player Brian Wecht (a.k.a. Ninja Brian) conceived of an act where a Jewish superhero with no powers and his ninja best friend would write and perform songs about unsuccessfully trying to find love.

Much to their own amazement, this idea caught on, and they soon built a reputation as one of the funniest comedy acts in the city. In 2011, they put out their first album NSFW, a collection of individual singles they’d released over the past two years, and began to play comedy festivals outside of New York. Since then, the live-band grew to include 6-members, a light show, and occasional appearances by an inflatable dinosaur. Word spread quickly from that point on, and NSP has continued to “wow” audiences across the world, playing over a hundred sold-out shows in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Over the course of their 11-year career, NSP has released 5 original albums (Most recently, 2020’s “The Prophecy”), 3 cover albums, and over 50 music videos. They were Billboard’s #1 selling comedy act in 2018 and have amassed over 290 million views on Youtube.

Dan and Brian are incredibly grateful for their enthusiastic and loyal fanbase and hope to continue playing Ninja Sex Party music until the Earth explodes…or they start feeling weird being grown men who wear spandex suits and ninja costumes. Whichever comes first.
